U partners with university in South Korea to create gaming center, ASUU Child Care program and call for faculty Student Media Council applications.


ASUU Child Care Program is now enrolling for summer semester 2015.

Sign your children up for a fun summer on campus (ages 6 weeks to 7 years).

The ASUU Child Care Program’s mission is to provide access to high quality, affordable
child care for student families at the University of Utah.


The ASUU Child Care Program is operated within the Student Affairs Division of the University of Utah. Children of university students have priority placement and subsidized fee options at the center. At least one student parent must be attending the university and be registered for a minimum of six credit hours for priority student placement. Children of university students will continue to be eligible as long as one parent maintains a registered student status. A weighted criteria scale based on student demographics is used to determine final enrollment.

While university faculty, staff, post doctorates and visiting scholars are not eligible for subsidized care, we welcome their participation in our program, if student slots are unfilled.

The program provides:
– Part-time hours and partial week scheduling
– Subsidized fees
– NAEYC accredited and state licensed
– Developmental programming for children 6 weeks through 7 years of age
– On-campus fields trips daily for children 5-7 years during summer semester

Summer hours are Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Please visit for enrollment information or call the center at 801-585-7393.

Student Media
The Student Media Council is currently accepting applications for council membership. Faculty from across campus invited to apply.

Student Media at the University of Utah has two primary missions: First, to engage, provoke, inspire and connect campus by telling the compelling stories of the University of Utah community; and second, to provide a hands-on experiential learning environment in media where students can put into practice skills and ideas from the classroom.

The council oversees a student fee, which helps support the Student Media department, and runs the Chronicle, K-UTE, DigitalU, University Media Sales and Student Media Marketing. By becoming a member of the Student Media Council, faculty can play an active role in helping administer this student fee. Faculty voices are also vital in helping establish how Student Media grows and develops and best serves the campus community.

Applications can be downloaded here. The deadline for application is April 20. Any questions can be directed to Jake Sorensen at or 801-581-7540.

The Eccles School’s Sorenson Center for Discovery & Innovation is partnering with Chung-ang University to create a digital gaming and engagement research and development center at the U campus in Songdo, South Korea.  The center will also bring its gaming expertise to the game-loving culture of South Korea by creating the first-ever joint international MBA and Master of Entertainment Arts and Engineering degree.

Chung-ang University led a delegation of Korean VIPs, including Dr. Jin-yee Shin, a member of the South Korean National Assembly, to participate in this year’s Games4Health Challenge, where students from two Korean universities participated with others students from around the world. Dr. Youngjeen Choe, vice president of international affairs at Chung-Ang University, led this delegation in their visit to the U campus to sign an agreement with U President David W. Pershing to create the gaming center in South Korea.

The center will teach graduate courses on digital gaming from both the technical and business perspectives, including game development and innovative gaming business model strategies. It will also offer executive education courses in business, innovation and entrepreneurship that focus heavily on digital engagement and digital business model innovations.
